Decision: Application by the Claimants to the British Columbia Expropriation Compensation Board for determination of compensation pursuant to the Expropriation Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 125.

The Claimants sought to recover the sum of $13,663.01 which was the actual cost incurred. The Authority's advance payment had included an allocation of $3,500 for moving costs. The Board awarded $8,870 for this item.
